    I started taking it in June and took it through the summer and got my :bfp: October 1. I don't know if it had anything to do with the Agnus Castus, but it seemed to help my spotting problems, went from have 3/4 days of spotting before AF to having 2 days, then one and a half, then my BFP. Good luck! :)

    I started taking it last month - so haven't really been on it long enough to see any difference.

    For those asking what it does - It can help regulate your cycle like in my case I was recommended it by a nutritionalist as my cycle is apparently on the slightly long side (32-34 days).

    I just realised as I am writing this e-mail sitting at the airport waiting for a flight to Cape Town that I left my Agnus Castus tabs at home..... grrrrr.... :dohh:

    i have taken Agnus Castus for a good few months, can't remember how many with out looking back, my cycles were irregular and i have a short luteal phase. Not sure if its the AC which has regulated my cycles or not but they are now between 27-28 days long, luteal phase is still too short though

    I am never quiet clear about whats the right advice on taking Agnus Castus and I have asked about it before.

    https://www.babyandbump.com/trying-to-conceive/62706-has-anyone-ever-taken-these-while-ttc.html

    I have taken Agnus Castus a few years back to help bring my PMS under control mainly psychological and behavioural symptoms like mood swings, crying, feeling low, irrational, over emotional etc rather than physical symptoms and I did feel it helped. I was considering taking Agnus Castus again but an too afraid it might mess with my cycle which I think it prob ok at 29-33 days. Am still unconclusive as to its benefits relating to ttc and at the momemt hoping that my PMS settles down.

    My cycles are completely messed up, last cycle was 79 days. This cycle I've had 14 days of AF so far (after 11 days of spotting), so likely to be extremely long again. I have thought about taking Agnus Castus, but my DH won't let me. You're supposed to stop taking it when you ovulate as taking it after ovulation increases the chance of a miscarriage. Not a risk we're willing to take.

    I found it on the first 2 sites I read when searching for Agnus Castus a couple of weeks ago ... but now that I'm trying to find it again, I can't find anything regarding it what so ever! Weirder even is that the sites I'm seeing now say that you can use it continuous until you're pregnant. Before it said until ovulation, then stop

    Am I going insane here? =/
